We’ve had these 2 huge bookshelves in our living room for 2 years now and they have been a mess for almost the entire time, I had such a vision of what they were supposed to look like and they turned into a collection pile and stuff we didn’t know what to do with. One day I just had enough of all the clutter in the house (this happens frequently) and I called my dear friend Wendy and told her I was overwhelmed and that I thought if I could just have the pretty bookshelves that I wanted, life would be less stressful, I don’t know how to explain that, some of you may understand. She loves that sort of thing and eagerly agreed to help, after a few sick kids cancellations we were finally able to do it. And, I LOVE it, it just makes me happy every time I look at it:)

It was actually a lot worse than what it appears, all that stuff on the tables & boxes was on the shelves!
and, after . . .
Thank you Wendy-for giving me a “pretty” bookshelf and restoring some of my sanity:)
It took a full week to clean up the rest of the living room, just in time to put the Christmas decor up!
